How To Link up MASCHINE to TraktorDJ

The Native Instruments MASCHINE is a dynamic piece of gear. One that adds another dimension when it comes to an electronic music performance. You can add yet another layer to this – remixing tracks on the fly, jamming and so much more, all in sync with TraktorDJ.

So here’s a step by step guide on how to link up your Native Instruments MASCHINE to TraktorDJ using the Ableton Link.

Step 1 : Create A Network On The Traktor System

The first step is to head over to the network settings of the laptop running TraktorDJ and create a new network. Make sure you name the network appropriately, so it’s easy to find.
